Nancy Herkness is the author of two award-winning novels: A Bridge to Love and Shower of Stars. She learned how to “deconstruct” at Princeton University, where she studied English literature and creative writing. Born and raised in the mountains of West Virginia, Nancy now lives in New Jersey with her husband, two children and a golden retriever. She was shocked to discover that, according to the Desperate Housewives Quiz, she most resembles the character of Gabrielle. Of course, she wouldn’t mind having Gabby’s figure or her shoes.
